It is anticipated that the antiatherosclerotic effects of PPAR agonists observed in experimental studies will translate into reduced cardiovascular events. This promise is yet to be realized in short-to-medium term studies. Given the central role of the PPAR in gene regulation, particularly in metabolic states, it is possible that more targeted modulation of PPAR signalling may hold many rewards for the prevention of atherosclerosis.
